Gurban Pirimov Is Born

Gurban Bakhshali oglu Pirimov or Primov (Azeri: Qurban Pirimov) (October 1880, near Agdam – 29 August 1965, Baku) was an Azerbaijani folk musician and tar-player.

He was born in the mountain village of Abdal-Gulabli near Agdam, then in the Russian Empire. The Pirimov family had had long lasting musical traditions: Gurban's great-grandfather Valeh was a famous Karabakhi ashik; and his older brother Aghalar was a saz-player. Deeply in love with folk music, Gurban Pirimov dropped out of school at age 13 to move to Shusha, then one of the important cultural centres of the Caucasus.

Jabbar Garyagdioglu or Garyaghdyoglu (Azeri Cabbar Qaryağdıoğlu, pronounced [dʒɑpˈbɑr ɡɑrjɑ:ˌdɯ.o:ˈlu]) (March 31, 1861, Shusha – 20 April 1944, Baku) was an Azerbaijani folk singer (khananda). He is known as the first khananda to perform mughamats in the Azeri language.
